Attack at King Cove
15604 N. Freya
The King Family Haunted House creates their version of an eerie attraction each October in Mead for those looking for a fright.

A place full of haunts, rides, scare zones, shows, and more is the ever-popular Scarywood held every year at Silverwood Theme Park.

Visitors will wander the park at night, but they’re not the only ones out — monsters are also roaming the grounds, ready to pounce at any moment.
This year, the five haunts featured are Blood Bayou, Dr. Delirium’s 3D Rockhouse, Pharaoh’s Curse, Planet Zombie, and Total Darkness. Of course, park-goers can also ride the traditional Silverwood rides but with a scary twist. Careful who you sit next to — your ride partner might just be a ghost!
